What is Antisemitism today, two generations after the Holocaust? In his continuing exploration of modern Israeli life, director Yoav Shamir travels the world in search of the most modern manifestations of the "oldest hatred", and comes up with some startling answers. In this irreverent quest, he follows American Jewish leaders to the capitals of Europe, as they warn government officials of the growing threat of Antisemitism, and he tacks on to a class of Israeli high school students on a pilgrimage to Auschwitz. On his way, Shamir meets controversial historian, Norman Finkelstein, who offers his views on the manner that Antisemitism is being used by the Jewish community and especially Israel for political gain. He also joins scholars, Stephen M. Walt and John J. Mearsheimer, while they give a lecture in Israel following the release of their book "The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy", about the disproportional influence the Israel lobby in Washington enjoys. Yoav visits Yad Vashem, the Holocaust memorial museum in Jerusalem, the must stop for all world leaders on their visits to Israel. While in Jerusalem, he drops by the house of his grandmother that offers her insight on the issue and declares that she is the "real Jew".

Defamation - A Counter-Balance to Holocaust™ Indoctrination
If Americans and Westerners believe that Holocaust™ education (indoctriation) should be mandatory in public schools, then "Defamation" should be also required viewing as a more than exceptable counter-balance, as well as an excellent primer for continuing education along these lines of thought.

Judaism as a world superpower
This movie shows the culture of hate that is taught to Jews, not just in Israel or America, but world wide. Anti-Semitism has become a pathology of ingroup persecution and outgroup hatred.
